   I don't see any legal issue here at all. 
   I only don't understand why would it be called GNU :)  

IMO, it would only be called GNU if we substituted GNU tools for their
BSD equivalent.  Otherwise it would be Debian BSD/FreeBSD, or simply
Debian FreeBSD.

BTW, I keep seeing references to Debian/Foo Bar in this thread.  I
believe that officially it is Debian Foo/Bar.
